How to Wear DIY: The gold stripe tee, skirt, and coat for winter

Rocking my gold spray paint stripe tee. Here's to simple, sparkly DIYs you can wear even in the winter! This How to Wear DIY is super wearable and what I rocked for an (early evening) date night last weekend. I love this blanket coat, too! And hey, finally an occasion to wear my faux leather pleated Target clearance skirt. ;) Would be super easy to DIY, too, if you had the fabric!

Big scarf essential. It has gold threads woven in it with the ivory yarn. Like warm jewelry!

P.S. Why does it look like I have brown roots? Since when is my hair that root color?!
(Update: Just pointed this out to husband. He says it's because it's been winter for the past few months (of hair growth) and the sun hasn't been out. Oh. Duh.)
Coat: Old Navy. Scarf: Calvin Klein from Ross. Skirt: Target. 
Shoes: DKNY from Goodwill. Tee: DIY, here!

So if you have a hankering for an easy winter DIY project, pull out your spray paint, put some newspaper down in your garage (open it after!), and try this tee!


  1. Okay, that DIY is pretty awesome. And I think I can even do that compared to some of the other things I've seen on this blog! ;)

  2. oh. my. goodness. i love everything about this outfit, especially the red coat.

  3. I love this! I'm definitely going to DIY a gold striped tee to go with my pleated leather skirt! Great combo!

  4. I love winter for the opoortunity to wear lots of "warm jewelry" as you call it :D
